2. This Pirate offense caught fire
Seton Hall had not had a great offensive showing as a team all season long, but this team came out in a tough environment and put on their best offensive performance of the season with this win. The Pirates finished with an impressive 58.9 percent shooting night from the field and ended up 10-23 from three-point range.
Seton Hall had five players finish in double figures, with Dre Davis having one of his best games as a Pirate, putting up 19 points off 8-13 shooting along with eight rebounds. Davis has truly started to get back to the player he was before he transferred to Seton Hall, the forward dealt with injury most of last season.
Kadary Richmond also did his usual thing with 14 points, and Jaden Bediako held it down in the paint with 11 points of his own and eight rebounds. The Pirates finally had a game where they played as a solid and cohesive unit offensively, doing whatever they wanted against the Tigers.
This was just a high-scoring game in general, including a second half where the Pirates scored 51 points, but it was impressive to see the improvements on offense given their past few games. For Seton Hall, it is now all about continuing this momentum into Big East play, which will be a tough task against the UConn Huskies. But while the Pirates did a great job on offense, they did not close out this game as early as they could have, which raised some concern.
